Beatrice’s owner Steve Solomon reveals the canine and the human actor are fast friends. “When it comes to Ed O’Neill, she and him have quite a bond,” says Solomon. “As soon as she walks on set, he basically stops what he’s doing and he comes over, grabs her, gives her a hug and she just simply gives it back to him.”
Producer Christopher Lloyd is on the verge of making Emmy history… again. He is the co-creator of “Modern Family,” a show with a strong chance to win its fifth straight time as Best Comedy Series and tie the all-time record set by “Frasier,” of which he was an executive producer for the five years (1994-1998) when it was Emmy champ in the same category.
In an exclusive chat with Gold Derby (watch below), Lloyd admitted, “I never dreamed I would be in the position once, let alone twice. It’s thrilling. We’ve been lucky with respect to Emmys on this show. I did not expect we would win in the first year. To even be contemplating five in a row is crazy.”
For Best Comedy Series this time around “Modern Family” faces returning shows “The Big Bang Theory,” “Louie,” and “Veep” along with newcomers “Orange is the New Black” and “Silicon Valley.”
Says Lloyd, “When you’re lucky enough to be on a show from the beginning as I have been, people want to come and join what’s already a good team and make it better. I think that’s a lot of why sometimes shows have streaks such as these two shows have had.”
EW published his Best Dad on TV and Phil wins it!
